I finally finished my mom's cowl....last weekend. Only a couple of weeks late.
I had the silly notion that if I started it the day before her birthday, I could have it finished the next day to give to her. It was only a skein of fingering weight, and besides I was on holidays, I didn't have to go to work, I could sit and knit all day.
Who was I kidding?
I think I'm like a lot of knitters, I can picture the finished product and instantly think that time stands still and poof.............it's done. Well, it is a wonderful pattern, and I could have had it done a lot quicker if I had less interuptions, like Christmas.
Pattern: Willow Cowl by Amelia Lyon
Yarn: Wollmeise 100% Sockenwolle, 150g--574yd colour Pfauenauge
This is a free pattern on Ravelry and I can't say enough about it. It's well written and a wonderful design. I love the way it sits on the neck. I did 5 lace repeats and used just over 400yds of fingering weight yarn. A perfect one skein project.
